Scattered Bugs

With my basic NetLogo skills, I wanted to capture the movement of bugs as they flew through a field of grass. To do this, I set the patches to green and set the turtle shapes to bugs. Then I created sets of turtles that moved forward different lengths to give the appearance of a whole circle filled with bugs scattering from a single location. Each "layer" of bugs was then set to go in a different direction for a more random, natural look.

  1. I like the idea and creativity of your piece, as well as the color; it's very eye-catching. I also like how the trail that the little bugs leave behind forms a flower-like image in the center. It fits in nicely with the green, grassy background. Nice!
